NEWS IN BRIEF: Moses completed his farewell address

February 10th, 2011 · 1 Comment

6 Adar
In 1273 BCE (Jewish year 2488), Moses completed his farewell address to the Jewish people, and God informed Moses that the day of his death was approaching (Deut. 31:14). Amazingly, the anniversary of Moses’ completing his teaching coincides with the date in 1482 of the first printing of the standard format used for Jewish Bibles today: vowel signs, accents, translation (Targum), and Rashi commentary.

FROM READER  ‘QUESTION’ : Was there an Adar Aleph and Adar Bet during the time of Mose? If not, when were the two Adars brought into use?

Moses’ birthday and date of death were always in Vav (6) Adar Aleph
